Thales awarded TacCom contract

20th June 2012 - 12:50 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Thales has announced that it has been awarded a prime contract by the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to provide public safety and tactical communications products under its new Tactical Communications (TacCom) programme.  The company made the announcement 19 June, 2012.

The multiple-award, indefinite-delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) programme will see DHS procure vital tactical radio equipment and other products and services. According to Thales, the agency will use the equipment to support reliable and interoperable public safety communications for its missions to keep the homeland safe, including border protection, customs enforcement, drug interdiction, and emergency response to natural and man-made disasters.

In addition to DHS, other federal agencies, including the Departments of Interior, State, and Justice, and the White House Communications Agency, can use the TacCom IDIQ contract vehicle to acquire the multiband radios they need to perform their missions.  The two-year programme has three option years and a potential ceiling value of $3 billion for all awardees.
